Rabbits at Easter
« on: April 04, 2021, 01:40:39 PM »

I'm puzzled about the connection  between Easter and rabbits. I don't remember anything from my 60s /70s childhood involving rabbits and easter.  When did this all start at n the uk, why?

I had assumed it was because rabbits are a symbol of new life, because they are, how can I put it, good at producing new life.

According to wikipedia, though, it was a German Lutheran tradition that the Easter Hare would judge children before Easter.  I am not sure when I first heard of the connection with rabbits or hares at this time of year, but it was interesting to look into the question!
